Dear Folks,

I am having problems setting up saned on Fedora 8:
$ grep sane /var/log/rpmpkgs

I've created user and group saned.
$ grep saned /etc/passwd
saned:x:1020:1021:User to run saned scanner daemon only:/:/sbin/nologin

When I do:
$ sudo -u saned sane-find-scanner |grep ^found
found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0, product=0x5511) at libusb:003:004
However, as myself, we also get the model information:
$ sane-find-scanner |grep ^found
found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [HP], product=0x5511 [Deskjet F300 series]) at
$ scanimage -L
device `hpaio:/usb/Deskjet_F300_series?serial=CN72FGM1CB04KH' is a Hewlett-Packard Deskjet_F300_series all-in-one
And as the saned user, we get no biscuit:
$ sudo -u saned scanimage -L

No scanners were identified.

Here are the permissions:
$ ls -l /proc/bus/usb/003/004
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 147 2008-01-03 06:21 /proc/bus/usb/003/004
$ cat /selinux/enforce 0

local scanning works fine for me.
All updates applied.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
